Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation | Review

Hi Guys! I have read so many good reviews on this foundation so I thought I would give it a go.

So Rimmel say -
"Wake Up & Glow! Rimmel’s first liquid foundation that instantly re-awakens skin with a healthy, radiant glow. Light, moisturising texture applies smoothly and leaves skin feeling soft and comfortable all day. Gives an instant flawless, natural-looking finish, visible anti-fatigue effect with peptides and a Vitamin Moisturising complex"

 I have read a lot of bloggers saying that it makes you look like a glitterball which worried me a bit as I hate shimmery foundations. When I tried this on my skin I was pleasantly surprised I didn't notice a shimmer on my skin at all and I looked at it in day light and under my bathroom light and I had no noticeable glitterball effect on my skin.

This is a very natural looking foundation.  I would say it has a medium coverage, it’s very light and creamy in texture and goes onto the skin very smoothly. Rimmel have done very well with the packaging – it’s in a glass bottle (I hate plastic bottles!) which makes it feel more expensive than it is - and it has a pump! Well done Rimmel! When applying this for a medium coverage I used two pumps of foundation and I applied it with my beauty blender. It left me with a dewy (not too dewy) healthy complexion.

 I am really impressed with this foundation considering it retails at £8.99 but is often on offer in Boots (I picked this up whilst it was on 3 for 2).

The only downside to this foundation is that there isn't a huge range in colours. There are 6 shades all medium/fair so if you have a very light or very dark skin tone you may struggle to find a match!

Also for anyone who suffers with dry skin like me, this didn't cling to any of my dry patches and actually felt very moisturising.
